Welcome to Winchcombe School

I hope our website will give you an insight into life at our school. We are always keen to ‘show-off’ the good practice that prevails here and to this end visitors are always welcome to take part in guided tours. Please contact the School Office to arrange a tour on 01242 602233.

Winchcombe School is unique in many ways; we are set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and with fewer than 500 students on roll, the personal touch is always guaranteed in everything we do.

Our academic record continually shows us to be well above national averages both in terms of GCSE results and levels of progress of students in all areas. The curriculum we offer is wide and varied, again focusing on the needs of each individual in the school.

We are continually striving to improve the facilities on offer at the school and have acquired land adjacent to the school that will virtually double the size of the school playing fields. We have also recently had our school hall extended and refurbished. The school computer network infrastructure was overhauled during the summer to allow us to deliver the latest ICT technologies to our pupils.

Our latest Ofsted highlighted the fact that youngsters feel safe and valued at the school. Ofsted also recognised that pupils are well behaved, their attendance is rising and that they are proud of their school. I feel that that this is all vital if youngsters are to achieve their true potential and our pastoral care system is geared to create this ‘fear-free’ environment in which every member of the school community feels valued and supported.

It goes without saying that there are a vast array of opportunities beyond the classroom for all youngsters, including Sport, Drama, Music and many other areas. We aim to cater for the needs of all our students in extra-curricular activities.

Thank you for showing an interest in Winchcombe School and I look forward to meeting you in person in the near future.
